I would never again have an overdenture with 4 implants. There is too much movement and too much food accumulates under denture. I have to take it out every time I eat. After having spent 11,000 on the overdenture, I am now in the process of having a permanent bridge on 6 implants...a cost of between 25,000 and 33,000 not including the 2 additional implants.
